Traffic crash causes delays on Tualatin-Sherwood Road

by: TIMES PHOTO: JAIME VALDEZ - Steel plates crashed into the cab of a commercial vehicle Monday afternoon.

A commercial vehicle hauling large steel beams along Tualatin-Sherwood Road lost its cargo at 1:04 p.m. Monday, spilling the heavy steel beams onto the road and causing major delays near Southwest Martinazzi Ave.

Tualatin Police shut down all but one eastbound lane while crews attempted to remove the beams from the road with a forklift.

The road was re-opened at about 4:20 p.m., said Tualatin Police Lt. Greg Pickering. No injuries were reported from the crash, but the beams did cause considerable damage to the back of the vehicle's cab.

Pickering said that no citations were issued as a result of the crash.
